These Are Our Children

This booklet was prepared in 1957 to publicize the school's activities and as a fund raising tool for possible future projects. It describes the various departments and programs of the school. The multiple handicapped program had just started and our animal husbandry program was in full swing.

The booklet includes several "dreams" of projects that were projected and that should be funded when monies became available. The "dream" of a library and swimming pool did come into fruition. Other "dreams" like a carillion or a manual arts building never became reality.
